Today, many couples decide not to follow the traditional guidelines anymore when it comes to their wedding. This includes how to wear the engagement and wedding rings.
In many European countries, it is still tradition to wear the engagement ring on the left and the wedding band on the right hand. These customs often aren't being followed anymore – mostly due to practical reasons. For example, many fear a faster wear and tear of their precious engagement ring when it’s being worn on the more active writing hand.
